Science and History of Whiskey

Course Description

We will explore how science, technology, and law have defined beverages that fall under the umbrella of whiskey whether it's Scotch, bourbon or other. Intrinsic to these definitions are the processes by which whiskey is made. Many of the individual steps of the process will be performed milling, mashing, and distilling. Differences in style and geography will also be discussed. Throughout, the impact that whiskey has had on American history will be examined during four epochs starting with the whiskey rebellion, the whiskey scandal, the whiskey trust, and the slow machinations towards and including Prohibition.
